Waiting on Wednesday and a Giveaway!!

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

 

Conveniently timed for a Waiting on Wednesday post, Stacia Kane just released the cover for her fourth installment in the Downside series titled Sacrificial Magic. Isn’t it fabulous?!?!

 

Back Cover Blurb:

READING, WRITING, AND RAISING THE DEAD

When Chess Putnam is ordered by an infamous crime boss—who also happens to be her drug dealer—to use her powers as a witch to solve a grisly murder involving dark magic, she knows she must rise to the challenge. Adding to the intensity: Chess’s boyfriend, Terrible, doesn’t trust her, and Lex, the son of a rival crime lord, is trying to reignite the sparks between him and Chess.

Plus there’s the little matter of Chess’s real job as a ghost hunter for the Church of Real Truth, investigating reports of a haunting at a school in the heart of Downside. Someone seems to be taking a crash course in summoning the dead—and if Chess doesn’t watch her back, she may soon be joining their ranks.

As Chess is drawn into a shadowy world of twisted secrets and dark violence, it soon becomes clear that she’s not going to emerge from its depths without making the ultimate sacrifice.

 

If you haven’t already read the first three in this series, this is the best time to do so since you can pre-order Sacrificial Magic at Amazon as part of the 4 for 3 promotion! This gritty Urban Fantasy series about a drug addicted ghost hunting witch in an almost dystopian society is one of my all time favorites and I am dying to read this fourth book in the series! I was going to do a  giveaway for a pre-order of this, but I think instead I’m going to give away any one of the three books in this series. The winner can choose which book they want, including the pre-oder of Sacrificial Magic. Enter your information in the Rafflecopter below to win.

I would love to win book 1 in the series. This is a new one to me so I haven't had a chance to read any of them yet, but they look great.

A drug-addicted ghost hunting witch?! *shaking head* That's the craziest combo I've ever hear of...lol...writers are putting all kinds of madness together. I've never read an Urban Fantasy, but this may be a little bit too much to start with...lol...It does sound interesting, though and could surprise me! Thanks for visiting me tonight :-)
